~a find and a thought~

Recently I came across this little pair of bib overalls in a drawer. They came from my Grandfather's country store and are a pair of salesman sample Anvil Brand overalls. The label on the bib also says High Point NC. I find this interesting because High Point is so noted for their furniture not clothing, (at least not that I'm aware of). If any of you know anything about these or the Anvil Brand please let me know, I'd love to hear your thoughts on them. Someone had suggested to me that they may belong on a doll but not in this case because my Dad remembers his Mother giving them to him from the store and that they were a sample pair.

The following picture was taken of one of my piesafes. I've had the snowmen on there since before Christmas. I'm thinking now is a good time to put them away. We've had way too much snow this winter, two snows of 12" or more. Now to some of you this may not seem like much but I live in central Virginia and it's most unusual for us. At this point I'm very sick and tired of looking out and seeing so much snow! I'm ready for daffodils, crocuses and pussy willow blooms. So I'm defintely thinking these snowmen have to go away till next winter.

Here's hoping for the longer, warmer and sunnier days of
Spring...I'm ready for them!

These are salesman sample overalls. My grandfather bought a pair in 1936, for his newborn to wear home from the hospital. 3 generations have worn these overalls.
